EVCA launches new tool to help entrepreneurs grasp benefits of venture capital

3 December 2014

Brussels, 03 December 2014 -- Today the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA) has launched a new tool to provide European entrepreneurs with insights into how venture capital can support them in growing their business.

EVCA’s online educational tools for entrepreneurs now include a one-minute introductory film, “Why choose venture capital for your business? to help entrepreneurs understand how venture capital fits into the investment picture, numerous investment case studies providing real-life examples of venture capital in action and a tool to help business owners find an investor.

Venture Capital can help entrepreneurs adapt to change, grow their business and gain traction. The animated film uses the metaphor of a skilled pit team testing innovative concepts to enable a racing car to compete more effectively and get ahead.

We would be delighted if you would care to share the video online with your readers using this link:

These tools are part of a range the EVCA is developing to build greater awareness of private equity, including our film ‘How Private Equity Works’ and the ‘Little Book of Private Equity’, which can be downloaded from our web site
